Christmas Metal Symphony is the brainchild from Ian’s old Hammerhead colleague Bert van de Watering 55Live in co-operation with Nuclear Blast. The first of these unique concept concerts had it’s debut in 013 Tilburg one of finest venues in the Netherlands.

The very best (international) singers such as DORO, RUSSELL ALLEN (Symphony X), MATS LEV√ČN (Therion), JOHAN EDLUND (Tiamat) and musicians from the Dutch metal scene from EPICA, AFTER FOREVER & ORPHANAGE performed many classic metal songs together with a 30 piece orchestra MAGNUS OPUS ROCKESTRA.

The Elegy gold disc box set re-releases have now been released by Metal Mind Productions Poland across Europe and is scheduled for release in the USA in May 2009.

As Ian explained to journalists recently: “I always wanted to have the chance to get the live home video recordings from the Japanese acoustic sessions for cable TV on disc and the albums re-mastered, especially Elegy’s State of mind album, which now sounds 10 times more powerful with the new digital mastering. We didn’t have this back in 1997, but even more cool for the fans now is they have the chance to view all the official Elegy video clips and hear previously unreleased demo & bonus tracks”.
